tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOX News  June 24, 2014 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
start your day 5:00 to 9:00. i'm throwing the football to kiante, our special guest tonight. we'll see you back here, tomorrow night. p. good night from washington. the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> i personally am calling to impeach the president of the united states. this is impeachable. if you don't want your vote back, what will it take? >> the conservative radio talk show hosts are very hard on president obama. but now with all the chaos, have they been correct about him from the beginning? we will hear from both sides tonight. >> we have a problem with you and you have a problem with maintaining your credibility. >> the new irs commissioner, once again, under siege but are republican congressman people being unfair to the man? darrell issa will answer that question. >> the revolutionary war.
8:01 pm
who did we fight there? >> china. >> china? [ laughter ] >> also ahead, why do people who don't know anything go in front of tv cameras with watters? we will tell you. >> vice president of the united states of america. >> dick cheney? [ buzzer ] >> caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> hi, i'm bill bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. first off two news briefs about key primaries during the broadcast this evening. pithy, we will keep it pitty, because we have a solid lineup for you. we will begin with this question. were the conservative radio talk show hosts correct about president obama from the beginning. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo? s as you may know bitter divide between. the left basically wants a
8:02 pm
different america, a progressive place where the federal government calls the shot. the right wants to maintain tradition and believes that smaller government is best. enter, perhaps, the most liberal president in history barack obama. from the beginning of his pain in 2007, he has been severely criticized on conservative talk radio. no surprise there. the president stands for things the right wing loathes. criticism is directed at the president are both personal and professional. the personal stuff doesn't amount to much. he is not a muslim. he was not born in kenya. he has never doneff fairous. word of the day. but the professional criticisms are turning out to be somewhat valid. a new cbs news, "new york times" poll usually very generous to the president shows his administration has collapsed in the court of public opinion. independence have joined conservatives in believing the president is not doing a good job. the basic problem is
8:03 pm
competency. and you may remember that the radio guys pointed out that barack obama had little experience running anything. that he was basically a community organizer and theorytitian if you analyze the facts seems to be accurate. problem skills and problem solving ability are dubious. president obama was quite clear, quite clear that if elected president he would reform the veterans affairs department. >> the true test of our patriotism is whether we will serve our returning heroes as well as they served us, that's why i pledged to build a 21st century v.a. as president. that means no more red tape. >> so what happened to that pledge? well, the v.a. is now a scandal. there are allegations that more than 1,000 american vets have actually died because they could not access proper care. the v.a. admits that more
8:04 pm
than 120,000 vets waited far too long for doctors so see them. in addition, the feds have paid out $845 million to settle v.a. malpractice suits. senator coburn of oklahoma, a physician himself has identified $25 billion wasted by the v.a. despite that $100 million given to v.a. administrators in bonus money in 2010 alone. a shocking abuse of taxpayer money. and while all that was happening, president obama did nothing, absolutely nothing add that the border, iraq, putin, the irs and you have an administration that's basically missing in action. in fact, for you history buffs what's happening right now is almost identical to president u.s. grants second term. it all fell apart for the old general because did he not pay attention. so, to be fair, it looks like the conservative radio talk show hosts were correct in their assessment of barack barack obama's ability to
8:05 pm
run the country. or am i wrong? and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from washington, kirsten powers, and here in the studio monica crowley, both are fox news analysts. so you are about to enter the no gloating zone. >> i'm not gloating. no gloating here. >> even though you did say at the beginning on the radio. >> i did. >> all right. that you do not believe this president could administrate. could run anything. >> right. that was one of the many points that those of us on the right were making and warning about barack obama back in 2008. all of the examples you lay out are t this is a american headquarters alert. associated press called the race for incumbent, thad cochran. you can see not all precincts are in, but what is still out,
8:06 pm
they're saying that thad cochran will mean, likely will mean he is going to have a seventh term in the united states senate. he was supported by tea party groups. this race went down to the wire. turn out was intense across the board nchl jackson county, cochran wins by 50.5%. again, thad cochran, the winner. now back to bill o'reilly, in progress. itad to do ideology. think at this had to do with mismanagement. >> is he too busy the other things to pay attention to that. >> you read the polls, you know what's going on. the president is cratering in job approval among independence, even among democrats. 25% of democrats according to the cbs poll think he is doing a horrible job. radio guys in the beginning, i use guys in a union sex
8:07 pm
way. everybody is included in the guys. all right, they said, look, the guy has no experience. he cannot run this. and that looks to me to be accurate. >> well, perhaps. but also, there does happen to be the fact that that is pretty much what they say about every democrat who runs for office. in fact, i will make a prediction right now, bill. the next democrat who runs for president will not have the right experience, they will not love america, they will actually hate the military. >> scrutinized but they will not say he doesn't have experience. >> yes they will. they absolutely will. >> i'm sorry they have already said it. they said the same things he they will accuse whoever it is to be border line socialists. far left. they did it with john kerry. the liberal senator. they say the same thing about every single democrat now sudden isenly you have somebody who isn't running the country wrong, criticism
8:08 pm
is right. i'm sure they said the same thing about bill clinton. who is this governor from arkansas. >> bill clinton is more a character issue than competency issue with him. look, you can't rebut the fact that what the -- monica and others said on the radio is now turning out to be true. now, i will challenge you on this. i think it's foolish to it ascribe motives to the president. again, you are entitled to your opinion. it's good fodder for conversation. but, in the proveable realm. the argument becomes much more effective is that here we have a president who is the most liberal president ever, and he can't solve any problems. >> um-huh well, i mean, look, you are talking about -- look, when you talked in 2008 about the fundamental transformation of the nation. we have six years of evidence what he meant by that everything from socialized medicine to wealth we distribution. >> socialized medicine? >> it is worse. you are thinking from your mind set from the far left mind set this is a success. >> he is not far left. >> don't put words in
8:09 pm
powers' mouth. she says that you believe that president obama has been a success is that true? >> i think he has been successful on some things, yeah. absolutely. >> u.s. grant was successful on some things. >> i would say overall he has been a disappointment. but i don't think he is far left by any stretch of the imagination. >> oh. >> which is why the left is so unhappy with him. >> the crooks aren't happy. is he as far left. >> don't know any liberals this is not -- his foreign policy was not, far left. >> kirsten, let's get through all of the investor binge, name one president that was more liberal than barack obama in our nation's history. one. >> jimmy carter. >> oh. no. >> yeah. i think he was. >> anybody else come to mind? rutherford hayes? anybody? >> i don't remember jimmy carter having the type of foreign policy that this president has. at all. >> on that point, jimmy carter actually learned his lesson. jimmy carter at the tail end of his term changed his policies, became more aggressive on the sof yet
8:10 pm
union. this president has not changed and that tells you who he is. >> all right. i have got to go. very interesting, ladies as always. we appreciate it next on the rundown, great american retreat. we talked about it last night with krauthammer. dana perino and alan colmes will have some thoughts tonight. withering attack on the irs. was it unfair? over the top? factor is coming right back.

i'm bret baier in washington. senate nomination in mississippi has gone to the incumbent let's go to john roberts. >> good evening, bret. looks like 51% for thad cochran, 51% for chris mcdaniel. nobody wanted to see it this close. this is a very, very big wake up call for the republican establishment here in the state of mississippi but there is a new movement in this state they need to pay attention to. cochran won the unions on the coast. 50,000 more people voted in the runoff than the primary. it's extraordinary. >> john, thank you. a major battle for g.o.p. nomination for colorado governor. it's been called for.
8:15 pm
political watchers say this could help cory gardener in the fall. in oklahoma, congressman james langford over senator over the end of the year. it's a busy night here on america's election headquarters i'm bret baier in washington. now back to new york and the o'reilly factor. factor follow up segment tonight. the great american retreat of 2014. no question the u.s.a. is losing influence abroad. here at home border chaos still shaking the economy and a number of major problems. fair to say america is in decline at least at present. charles krauthammer addressed that last night. >> there is a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. what we have with obama is a president choosing decline. we have a president who
8:16 pm
doesn't believe in american exceptionism, exceptionalism and america's greatness he has chosen for america to retreat from the middle east and not lift a finger places like ukraine. basically to make us one nation among others. >> here now to react dana perino and alan colmes. now, dana, the liberal line is that the decline began while you were working for president bush the younger and they point to the iraq war which drained blood and treasure from this country and then the recession caused by the banking shenanigans behind the scenes. the federal government didn't pick up on. so, you can't blame president obama because it all started on bush. and president obama is just simply not age to dig his way out. and you say in. >> i think that we could play that game all night long. and i could even go back to bill clinton and say well, if he hadn't gutted the intelligence community, then 9/11 might not have happened. and then the clinton people could say well, if george h.w. bush had finished
8:17 pm
desert storm, then we wouldn't have been in this problem in the first place. you can continue to go back a ways and i can argue also on recession that you can look back at the housing policies of the clinton administration and before that. with all the decisions to try to get more minority on housing and how that led to a bubble that the democrats fiercely defended in particular barney frank and chris dodd. >> you remember what happened to barney here. so you are rejecting that argument. >> i think it's fair to argue about what happened under president bush's presidenciy. but that doesn't mean then you can excuse what happened in -- from 2008 on which arguably more consequences. >> do you agree with krauthammer that the president wants american power to recede. do you agree? >> i think that that -- he wants that because he thinks that is the best thing for america. i think his intentions are that america polling back and not being so involved in the world will ultimately
8:18 pm
that's what i think president obama thinks. >> he purposefully wants to us decline? changing decline. want to be involved as much in the world decline, but we have been involved. he went into -- talking about going to iraq. he sent troops in there once again for training purposes. we went into libya. we had a surge in afghanistan. >> let me ask medium workers is declined, correct? >> under him. >> yes. >> that's declined, yes? >> just keeping my question, like a court of law. decline in earning power. >> yes. correct. >> influence abroad, i would say it's decline, challenge by putin. wait wait wait. i will back it up. challenged by putin. okay. gains in iraq lost. afghanistan. >> through no fault of obama. >> gains in iraq. we got out thereof in 2009. >> no, no. mosul is gone now. we have to fight it back. i'm saying gains in iraq
8:19 pm
lost. >> it was working. >> decline on president obama. can you blame whoever you want. that's why i opened up with ms. perino and bush. i'm telling you you said america is not in decline. i i gave you three big things where it is decline and now back to you. now you say and some conservatives are going to be angry with you that it isn't by design that president obama isn't subverting the power of the nation. as you well know that a lot of conservatives believe that's not true. he doesn't really like the capitalistic system. he feels we are unfair nation and he wants to bring us down. i think that it's actually two separate things. do i think president obama wants us to have less influence in the world? yes, because he thinks that is a good thing for america. i disagree. york it's a good thing for america. i like peace through strength. i'm for america being more involved in the world because america is like the mom that you better not cross her. but you better respect her. >> all right. >> that's how you cooperate so i don't think that president obama necessarily
8:20 pm
came into office thinking gosh, i really want to ruin this country and bring it to its knees. >> point real quick because i have got to get the last word. >> effect of the policies, the consequences of policy decisions is that we have all the things that you listed happening and more. >> colmes, last question you got about 30 seconds. the cbs poll shows overwhelmingly that president obama's job approval ratings. >> yes. >> is in the tank because people don't feel is he doing a good job. you feel he is doing a good job. >> yes. >> what's the difference between you and every other american. >> i don't know -- how much time do we have? >> you can't judge this presidency three quarters into it. >> five and a half years? >> you judge the presidency through the lenz of history. >> which why may be -- >> your guy was down and now he is resurrected in terms of ratings. >> that can't happen if president obama loses two wars that's a problem. >> we have very important

8:25 pm
washington darrell issa chairman of the house overnight committee. first of all you and the irs commissioner went back and forth last night. what's your personal assessment of the man? is he a deceiver? >> the simple answer is yes. he had an opportunity when he learned that his earlier testimony was at a minimum incomplete. to come back and tell us that rather than allow it to go to the white house and then only come out to us when we discovered through other subpoenaed documents at the department of justice that, in fact, we hadn't received all of lois lerner's emails. >> all right. it's a little complicated. just so everybody understands, initially, you asked for all of lois lerner's he emails. mr. koskinen said sure i will hand them over to you. then he made a visit to the white house. after he that visit he then come out and said oh, a lot of them are erased that you want and they are all pertaining to lois lerner's activities about the tea
8:26 pm
party conservative groups. so you say that he knew that these things were gone or vanished or whatever story. he subpoenaed them in august of last year for all the documents, all that time went by and apparently they weren't actually looking for them commissioner in front of us in february. at that time he says he didn't know but he did know there was a problem. he never disclosed the nature of a problem or concern. >> in between august or february february to not know. i'm not buying it either. i'm not buying it. i think most of my viewers aren't buying it we feel that there is shah shah -- do you feel other members of the government working for the irs or otherwise purposefully destroyed lois lerner's emails because they would have incriminated the agency? do you believe that's the
8:27 pm
case? >> we don't have evidence of that bill, what we have at the irs is a conscious decision for the irs to destroy all documents after six months unless they are saved by the individual. so, think about this. you self-select the documents you want to keep, the rest disappear after six months. that's how your irs does business. could you imagine. >> sure. and every department, if you do something that you you might get caught, you are going to delete it every human being would do it. now we have to it advance the story. the way to get this thing clarified is to give lois lerner immunity, to force her to testify. is it not? >> i wish it was. he she has already been referred for four criminal indictments. she plead that she is innocent and has done nothing wrong. as you know, if she were willing to proffer through her attorney that she would tell us something, meaningful, disclose how
8:28 pm
these crimes were committed, how then we could. vote. >> do preemptively and waste your time. you know trey gowdy is an experienced prosecutor on my committee. he said very simply she is offered only that she is innocent and misunderstood. we have referred criminal charges from congress because she is not misunderstood. we understood pretty well. >> last question and i have got to run. you know, that the attorney general of the united states is not going to aggressively pursue ms. lerner. you know that. so, it looks to me like this is never going to be clarified. last ward. >> we have, in fact, referred out of the ways and means four criminal charges and she has been held in
8:29 pm
contempt. that is a certainly a good start to say she committed crimes against conservatives in her official role and, in fact, once she is charged by the justice department eric holder ever does it? >> he won't. >> then we have an opportunity to offer immunity, right now justice department of president obama and eric holder. >> that's right. >> there you go. appreciate your time tonight. plenty more ahead as the if a factor moves along this evening. can president obama or any other president kill annual american citizen without court of congressional approval? is it legal on that. and later does jesse watters seek out the dumbest americans he can find? are we stacking the incident electric actual debt? i will deal with it and we hope you stay tuned to those reports. ♪ [ female announcer ] we love our smartphones. and now telcos using hp big data solutions
